Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Elizabeth "Liz" Dudek has an ambitious "to-do" list for Governor Rick Scott's upcoming second term, according to Christine Jordan Sexton of SaintPetersblog

Included on that list is simplifying the online licensing process for health care facilities, as well as changing the way health care services are paid for by Medicaid. According to Saintpetersblog, Dudek hopes to "ride out" Scott's last term in office, after which she says "there are probably some other people who should be at the helm".

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
